Cornell Cooperative Extension Chautauqua County’s 4-H Program announced Wednesday that a new STEM program dubbed STORY (Science, Technology, Opportunities for Rural Youth) will debut Saturday.

Already, Sherman Central School 6th grade students have been working to learn, solve and come up with a presentation on Biosecurity.


The students have been meeting on a weekly basis for the last two months to work on and help solve the spread of disease carrying mosquitoes.

The STORY program is a regional program funded by a grant from The Ralph Wilson Jr. Foundation.

Officials with the 4-H program will be hosting a presentation at 11:00 a.m. at the Frank W. Bratt Agricultural Center; 3542 Turner Rd. in Jamestown this Saturday. The public is welcome and encouraged to attend.
